A little bit about ...
The past 15 years I've been working as a designer and creative developer, specializing in visual identity & editorial design, illustration and concept development. As a creative entrepreneur I've worked on various art, design and communication projects, collaborating with other creatives including writers, photographers, website developers, illustrators, animators and filmmakers.
Over the years I've worked for a number of educational, cultural and commercial organizations to help them define their identity and their story; by developing concepts, visualizing narratives and applying various design techniques to engage their public.
Next to working on more client based projects I also develop independent and collaborative art projects, experimenting with a mix of conceptual and form-oriented work, using techniques such as screen printing, drawing, photography and painting.

Education and Curriculum Vitae
During my studies Graphic Design (Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht) and Creative Development (Universiteit Utrecht) I focussed on editorial design, concept development, designing narratives and visual identities. It was then that I discovered my interests for telling and visualizing stories and creating engaging designs. My studies helped me to develop a project oriented approach to design which allows me to work both strategically, conceptually as well as being able to carry out the more practical sides of a design project.
